Welcome to the Administrative Assistance reading room. You can request assistance from administrators for handling a variety of problems here and alert them about problems which may require special actions not normally used during regular content editing. Please be patient as administrators are often quite busy with either their own projects or trying to perform general maintenance and cleanup.

You can deal with most vandalism yourself: fix it, then warn the user. If there is repeated vandalism by one user, lots of vandalism on a single page, or vandalism from many users, tell an admin here, or in #wikibooks (say !admin to get attention).

For more general questions and assistance that doesn't require an administrator, please use the Assistance Reading Room.

  Not done – not an LTA. Their spamming mostly seems to have been handled by the filters. Please give me a ping if they make an edit, though. --SHB2000 (discusscontribs) 07:49, 8 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Username sounds very suspicious, IDK if this is the LTA from above, but I'm watching them and hoping they don't do anything bad. Garfieldcat1978 (discusscontribs) 19:43, 22 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  Not done what makes you think this username is that of an LTA? SHB2000 (discusscontribs) 20:28, 22 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please block Modrkcom

  Not done a single spammy edit isn't enough to warrant a block. SHB2000 (discusscontribs) 11:33, 26 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Reason: Inappropriate username. Leonidlednev (discusscontribs) 20:24, 27 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User has been vandalizing various pages, creating nonsense pages, and leaving irritating messages at my talk page. Heavy Water (discusscontribs) 15:28, 7 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Apologies, I didn't realize this project uses warnings. I have now warned the IP. Heavy Water (discusscontribs) 15:31, 7 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have given them a short 2-day block to interrupt their disruption. If it persists, a longer block makes sense! —Kittycataclysm (discusscontribs) 19:32, 7 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hi. User have made smap on my discussion page ( see history). I have reverted edits. Should I do more ? Soul windsurfer (discusscontribs) 15:47, 7 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Warn them? I also requested a block above. Heavy Water (discusscontribs) 16:05, 7 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Vandalism on my talk page

w:User:Jinnifer is editing on my talk page here asking me to make edits to web pages on Wikipedia. My talk page was previously locked, could it be locked here again? Thank you! Andrzejbanas (discusscontribs) 21:25, 10 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  Done – protected for one month. Let me know if it needs to be extended after this period. SHB2000 (discusscontribs) 22:10, 10 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
